    Apple includes countless two-step fail-safes in many functions of iOS to help prevent user error in potentially dangerous tasks, such as deleting text messages, marking notifications as read, and even entering ‘jiggle’ mode to move home screen applications around.

    According to the latest estimates from security firm Symantec, the malware we've all come to know as "Flashback" likely helped its authors to break the bank just as their malicious creation was infiltrating and infecting an incomparably large number of Macs.

    Desperate times, they say, call for desperate measures.

    With BlackBerry's prospects for a profitable future falling faster than the weight of a contestant on the Biggest Loser, it comes as little surprise that Research in Motion will do just about anything these days to gain some attention and generate some sales.

    And we mean anything.

    According to published reports late Monday, it was the BlackBerry maker ...

    On Monday, Israel's YNET News reported that preparations for Apple's Israeli research and development center "have kicked into ...

    "Well, there goes $36,000 worth of good computers," as Upper Allen Elementary School staff must have been thinking to themselves after an eleven-year-old boy dropped his pants and urinated all over a computer cart full of 36 MacBook computers on Wednesday. All 36 MacBook computers were damaged in the incident.

    I’m not sure what it would have taken to get a child to think it was a good idea to treat ...

    Ever since a number of recent updates to the mobile iOS Skype application, it has been widely regarded as, "unstable" and, "unusable." This was due to the application’s extremely slow response speeds and buggy interface. For many, the application would simply crash upon startup or loading would be so slow the user would rather hop on their computer to use Skype.

    Today, a new version of Skype for iOS (4.0) comes to the ...
